I’m so thrilled to see that Miley Cyrus has released new music. “She Is Coming” only has six tracks but they all blew me away.
Miley’s 2013 “Bangerz” introduced a brand new incredibly empowering and controversial woman to the world. It was full of party anthems that still had a lot of heart to them. Following this was her 2016 “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz” — an absolute gem that she actually released FOR FREE on SoundCloud. It was an extremely introspective, reflective, raw, and super psychedelic album inspired by Pink Floyd and produced with the help of The Flaming Lips. I saw her concert in Philly during this era.
And then she sadly disappointed many with her 2017 “Younger Now” which was cute but seriously lacking pizzazz. Her music became a bit more safe and dull as she tried too hard to dissociate from her Bangerz era — which may have been a little cringy and embarrassing but that is the exact reason why it was such a successful era — because she embraced everything about herself that society tells us to feel ashamed about. The 2014 tour photos are exact proof of how ridiculously free she is, in the best way possible. Her shamelessness is what made her so empowering, and suddenly she had become shameful and felt the need to find a new sound. Luckily it seems she has listened to the feedback and returned to her original Bangerz sound that her fans really love her for.
I am so in love with “She Is Coming” because it represents everything that draws me to Miley Cyrus. Most pop artists try so hard to look perfect. They take themselves too seriously and act like they are royalty. I like when entertainers understand that that’s exactly what they are — entertainers. Their jobs are not to be worshipped and adored, but to provide good vibes to the world and help raise our spirits when we are feeling bored or lost. And to be an entertainer you need to put yourself out there completely and shamelessly, being able to make fun of yourself and not take yourself so seriously. If you ever see videos of Miley bursting into dancing, she goes all out like nobody is watching, and that’s something that makes people want to turn up and join in. You will never be able to fully live your life and fully enjoy yourself until you let go of worrying about people judging you.
